Extending the life of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant could help California meet the increasing challenges of climate change by providing clean, safe and reliable electricity, water and hydrogen fuel, according to a new study. Researchers from Stanford’s Precourt Institute for Energy and from MIT’s Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems and the MIT Abdul Latif Jameel Water & Food Systems Lab jointly will present their key findings in an online seminar on Monday, Nov. 8. The seminar is free and open to all.
